More help is on the way for United Cerebral Palsy in the wake of a fire that destroyed a group home for three disabled individuals.
The United Way of Central Illinois has approved more than $6,000 in emergency funding to help UCP cope with some of the expenses from the fire earlier this month. The money will cover insurance deductibles and replacement of some of the personal items lost in the blaze.
There have been other cash and in-kind donations from local businesses and private individuals, but more help is needed. To see a list of what UCP still needs, go to springfieldunitedway.org.
